    I have been working at Lyft full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lyft is a rapidly growing organization, meaning there are many opportunities for development. The company is made up of an impressive team with smart, accomplished, welcoming and passionate individuals at every level. Leadership and employees alike have an avid interest in their colleagues' and the company's success.

    Cons

    The company is in the spotlight quite often, so everyone you meet will have an opinion or question about the service.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Lyft has awesome values, and seeing the CEOs constantly strive to achieve the company's goals while upholding these values makes it easy to be proud to work for the company.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to move up within the company, which is a bit discouraging.

    Pros

    Awesome people, strong leaders and mission driven! I love going to work every day and being surrounded by such intelligent people. Because Lyft is still a smaller company there is so much work to be done which means tons of impactful work for me. Perks are great! Especially being dog friendly :)

    Cons

    Don't have any negatives to share as of now. It's a great company!

    I have been working at Lyft full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lyft has a reputation as a "nice" company, and the people live up to it. People here believe strongly in the mission of the company and they're really smart, but the egos aren't out of control. The company moves quickly, so it's exciting to see your work have an impact. And the benefits are pretty good: free Lyft credits, catered lunch, amazing maternity/paternity leave, dogs at the office.

    Cons

    The compensation is a bit worse than you'd get elsewhere. (Wait, no 401k match?) So you're definitely sacrificing a bit for the privilege of working at Lyft. And the flip side of the fast pace is that objectives change a lot and cause thrash.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on setting those big, audacious goals, but be more methodical about planning to achieve them. Lyft isn't a scrappy little startup anymore. It's a $15B company now, and it needs to execute like one.

    I have been working at Lyft full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -People are incredibly smart and helpful
    -They hire all-star management with proven track records. The learning is fantastic.
    -Our initiatives make me proud - easy to brag about this company
    -People walk their talk
    -Benefits and events are great
    -Culture is amazing

    Cons

    -Grateful for the variety of IT resources but it's confusing about where to go for what and everyone uses a different medium, so you have to figure out individual preferences. There's also a lack of training on how to use these IT resources.
    -Because the company is moving so fast, there are a lot of processes and structures not in place, so things are messy.
    -Commission plans are a long stretch - rely on your salary, not commission. They change every quarter.
    -Communication and transparency is not that great, especially around change and restructure. There is a disconnect between offices and between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Give more advanced notice about changes, not just band aid ripping over and over. Have hold outs. Hire more Sales Ops. Be thoughtful about process and people needed to grow, not just growing and hoping to fill the gaps later.

    I have been working at Lyft full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Fast-paced, inclusive, and collaborative culture with so much room for learning and growth in a quickly changing industry
    -Many avenues for future opportunities
    -An environment that makes it easy to feel connected to, and a part of, the overall company goals and successes. Actually feel good and excited about coming in to work.
    -Pay is competitive and benefits are pretty awesome

    Cons

    -With how fast things are moving and changing, sometimes there can be a feeling of work going in several different directions at the same time, but really, that's pretty much the nature of startups in the first place.
    -Work/Life balance is good for the most part, but there can be periods where that's not the case. But again, kind of comes with the fast-paced nature of startups.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great office culture, fun atmosphere, awesome perks.

    Cons

    I have not yet found a true con. Maybe the location of the downtown building. Parking can be tricky.
